The premiere recording of John Adams's nativity oratorio, juxtaposing biblical accounts of Christ's birth with Spanish poetry.

“John Adams's nativity oratorio is a winner, a very palpable hit - an intelligent, emotional and sometimes magical re-telling of the old, old story from a new perspective...you can tell the cast has the music in their bones...El Niño emerges with a new radiance and beauty on record.”
Andrew McGregor - BBC
